If you are a Harry Potter fan this tour is a must!
Laura_S, Sep 2023
Our tour guide was amazing and so knowledgeable! You could tell she is a true Harry Potter fan! I loved seeing the locations where J.K. Rowling wrote her novels, as well as the cemetery where she found inspiration for names.

My granddaughters had a really good time on the tour. I’m not sure who their guide was, but they said he was quite good.
